In this pack you will find a range of ideas, activities, resources and lesson plans, designed to allow you to engage students on the topic of Coastal Management & Engineering, facilitate learning and maximise understanding of natural coastal processes and management strategies for the local beaches, foreshores and dunes on the Gold Coast. Resources are created for targeted year groups and include clear curriculum links.
Coastlines are dynamic environments, constantly changing as a result of coastal processes and varying weather patterns. Under calm conditions, the sand may shift just a millimetre or so and during an extreme storm event, beaches can change rapidly as sand is moved offshore. Historically, storm events have driven innovation in coastal engineering in order to protect our city. However, as population has grown on the Gold Coast, so too has development along our beaches. A range of coastal management techniques are being implemented across the Gold Coast to meet the varying challenges faced by each area, depending on environmental conditions and the extent of development.
The resources in this pack allow you and your students to explore Coastal Management & Engineering on the Gold Coast, through engaging and thought provoking activities.
